About

Hello!

The Survivant Organization (TSO), a non-profit dedicated to assisting female victims of domestic and sexual violence aged 16-24 needs YOU!

Being a survivor of domestic and sexual violence myself, I want to put together a team dedicated to using their positions in the non-profit community here in DC to attract more survivors to come forward, tell their stories, receive the help they often do not seek for numerous reasons, and combat the silent epidemic of violence towards women. We have several projects in the works geared towards awareness, interactive education, and therapy through the use of art that we really need help bringing to fruition.

Specifically, we need an EXPERIENCED individual for the TREASURER POSITION. Here is an overview of the position:

The Board will support the work of The Survivant Organization (TSO) and provide mission-based leadership and strategic governance.

Board meetings will be held quarterly and committee meetings will be held in coordination with full board meetings.
